Summary: I bought this after having bought the TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT AV500 Nano and finding that it only had a 100 Mbps connection. This device does have a gigabit (1000 Mbps) connection, but it still is not capable of even the 500 Mbps speed that it is rated for. I have two computers on my local network.
Summary: I've had a standard pair of powerline nodes that I've been running for years, and these new ones didn't really offer an improvement. I wasn't really expecting too much, because powerline is so subjective to your house wiring.
Easier than running cable, but don't expect wired speeds.

Summary: I've used the 500Mbps TP-Link adapters for a year now. Installation was dead easy. I bought two pairs, and synched them all together. As long as you synchronize them at adjacent power points, they keep working when moved apart, even to different rooms / power circuits.
Summary: I'm giving this product a 4/5 only because it's highly reliant on the quality of your electrical wiring and the distance you are going between units. My use case was to run ethernet from my office, where the modem and router reside, to my media center for my HTPC and Xbox One.

Summary: Lifesaver product, I highly recommend using this if you have no way of running a wired connection across your house. Just remember you need two, one for the room with the router and one for the room with the intended connection.
Summary: Great Product...super fast shippin...came in at exactly as described..takes alot of pressure off when that happens..Thank You Very Much..Great Job. Transactions this smooth deserve future considerations.
Summary: This is a pretty good piece of kit and is straight forward to set up. No Ethernet cables to lay out etc. It means the children’s PS3, the Sky box and Media center NAS are connected to the internet.

Summary: My WiFi speed to my iMac was about 9-12 MB/s on a connection which is supposed to provide 24 MB/s to my home. This device is two walls and about 30 feet from my u-Verse Residential Gateway. Running a cable in the apartment would have been challenging.
